Other Issues
Use these procedures to resolve other issues which may occur.
The problem
The TV is hot.
The picture won’t display
in full screen.
Try this!
Watching TV for an extended period of time causes the panel to generate heat. The
heat from the panel is dissipated through internal vents running along the top of
the TV. The bottom, however, may feel hot to the touch after extended use. Children
watching TV need constant adult supervision to prevent them from touching the
TV. This heat, however, is not a defect and does not affect the TV's functionality.
HD channels will have black bars on either side of the screen when displaying
upscaled SD (4:3) content.
Black bars will appear at the top and bottom of the screen when you watch movies
that have aspect ratios different from your TV.
Adjust the picture size options on your external device or set the TV to full screen.
The "Mode Not
Supported" message
appears.
The output resolution of the attached device is not supported by the TV. Check
the TV's supported resolutions and adjust the external device’s output resolution
accordingly.
The Subtitles item in the
TV menu is greyed out.
You cannot select the Subtitle menu if you have selected a source connected to the
TV via HDMI or Component. To view subtitles, turn on the external device's subtitle
function.
The TV smells of plastic.
This smell is normal and will dissipate over time.
The Signal Information
option under Self

Remove the base stand from the TV and reassemble it.
The stand is wobbly or
crooked.
Make sure the indicator arrows on the stand and stand holder are properly aligned.
The remote control or
voice does not work.
The TV ships with protective stickers covering some of the sensors. Make sure all
of the stickers have been removed.
The problem

Before Using the Recording and Timeshift Functions
Read these instructions before using Recording and Timeshift.
"" This function is only available on certain models in specific geographical areas.
Before using the recording and schedule recording functions
●●
To set up a Schedule Recording, you must first set the TV's clock. Set the Clock (
System Time Clock).
Settings
●●
You can set up a maximum total of 30 Schedule Viewing and Schedule Recording entries.
●●
Recordings are DRM-protected and therefore cannot be played back on a computer or on a different
TV. In addition, these files cannot be played back on your TV if its video circuit has been replaced.
●●
A USB hard drive with a speed of 5,400 rpm or above is recommended. However, RAID-type USB
hard drives are not supported.
●●
USB memory sticks are not supported.
●●
The total recording capacity may differ with the amount of available hard drive space and the
recording quality level.
●●
Schedule Recording requires at least 100MB of free space on the USB storage device. Recording will
stop if the available storage space falls below 50MB while recording is in progress.
●●
If the available storage space falls below 500MB while both the Schedule Recording and Timeshift
functions are in progress, only the recording will stop.
●●
The maximum recording time is 720 minutes.
●●
Videos are played according to the TV settings.
●●
If the input signal is changed while recording is in progress, sometimes the screen will go blank
until the change is made. In this case, recording will resume, but will not be available.
●●
When using the Record or Schedule Recording function, the actual recording may start a second or
two later than the specified time.
●●
If the Schedule Recording function is operating while a recording is being made on an HDMI-CEC
external device, the priority is given to the Schedule Recording.
●●
Connecting a recording device to the TV automatically deletes abnormally saved recording files.
●●
If the Off Timer or Auto Power Off has been set, the TV will override these settings, continue to
record, and turn off after the recording has ended.
Before using the timeshift function
●●
A USB hard drive with a speed of 5,400 rpm or above is recommended. However, RAID-type USB
hard drives are not supported.
●●
USB memory sticks or flash drives are not supported.
●●
The total recording capacity may differ with the amount of available hard drive space and the
recording quality level.
●●
If the available storage space falls below 500MB while both the Schedule Recording and Timeshift
functions are in progress, only the recording will stop.
●●
The maximum amount of time available for the Timeshift function is 90 minutes.
●●
The Timeshift function is not available for locked channels.
●●
Time-shifted videos are played according to the TV settings.
●●
The Timeshift function may be terminated automatically once it reaches its maximum capacity.

Installing an anti-theft lock
●●
An anti-theft lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for the
lock slot on the back of the TV. The slot has a icon next to it. To use the lock, wrap the lock cable
around an object that is too heavy to carry and then thread it through the TV's lock slot. The lock is
sold separately.
●●
The method of using an anti-theft lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the lock's user manual
for more information.
"" This function is only available on certain models in specific geographical areas.
Read before setting up a wireless Internet connection
Precautions for wireless Internet
●●
This TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via Home Network may not play
back smoothly.
""
IEEE 802.11 ac communication protocol is not available on certain models.
●●
To use wireless Internet, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless
router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless network.
●●
Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the
wireless router is currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or a
communications failure.
●●
Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security
system, you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then needed
to connect to a security-enabled AP.
Wireless security protocols
●●
The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols.
––
Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
––
Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
●●
In compliance with the newest Wi-Fi certification specifications, Samsung TVs do not support WEP
or TKIP security encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode.
●●
If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), you can connect the TV to your network
using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS automatically
configures the SSID and WPA key settings.
●●
The TV cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
Read Before Connecting a Computer (Supported Resolutions)
Check these Supported Resolutions before connecting a computer to the TV.
●●
When you connect your TV to a computer, set the computer's video card to one of the standard
resolutions listed in the tables below or on the next page. The TV will automatically adjust to the
resolution you choose. Note that the optimal and recommended resolution is 3840 x 2160 at 60 Hz.
●●
Choosing a resolution not included in the tables can result in a blank screen or just the power
indicator turning on.
●●
Refer to the user manual of your graphics card for compatible resolutions.
